To say that our ladies were on fire is testament to the fabulous golf played by all pairings!! Manager Elaine had a running commentary on the WhatsApp group, keeping everybody informed from tee to green of the current standings at time of posting!!

The calibre of golf from our girls was such that matches were won on the 13th and 15th respectively and the all square match called in, fantastic result!! The next leg of the tournament will be on our home course again when they take on Waterford Castle on 4th June at 3pm.  Thanks to the members who came to support their team, it was much appreciated, but we will need you again next Sunday!!  A huge thank you to our wonderful team and magnificent manager Elaine for their steadfast enthusiasm and effort put into each event!!
